HARMON AND MOB LAW
Thnt mob represented an Issue In
.politics, at least In Newark. They
stood for a total disregard for lnw.
Up to that time they have been able
to defeat candidates for public office
In Newark, and public officers were
somewhnt fearful of opposing them,
Governor Hnrmop might hnve evnd
od nny part In that dispute. He could
have allowed the local officers to solve
the situation, and, hud he assumed the
usual rolo of the conciliating politi
cian, might have remained up In the
Michigan woods away from the scene.
Instead be cut his vacation when not
ified of the outrage. He hurried to
ills home and thence to Newark, where
lio conducted a personal Investigation.
He suspended tho mayor and directed
tbo dismissal of tho high police author
Hies. Charges were preferred against
tho Bherlff, and that official resigned.
They'ro going to have law and order
In Nownrk now. The stand taken by
Governor Harmon has biought color
to tho cheek of every lluckeyo with
red blood in bis veins. His manly,
Ilrm, immedlnto grasp of the situation
has taken tho country by storm. And
yot ho simply did his duty. Every
where people nre applauding tho splen
did work of that great big Doniocrntle
Governor of Ohio and they tiro call
ing as ho hns called for tho punish
ment of those who committed and
thoso who permitted the cruel death
of Ethcrlngton. The recompense of
tbo deplorablo affair Is that tho young
Kcntucklau did not die In vain. Law
nnd order gained tremendously in
the sacrifice he made.
The nowspapers some mouths ago
printed advertlsomentH which solicit
ed tbo public to buy 40,000 Bhares of
the stock of tho Arizona Metals com
pany ut I2.G0 por flharo (par valuo
$5.00). Tho advertisements sot forth
hopes nnd prospects In the manner
common to such solicitations, but
tho larger typo was reserved for tbo
"Senator Charles Dick, President,
Washington, I). C."
There Is nothing uiicomnum in n
senator's being an Investor In a min
ing company witness the cases of
Penrose and Guggenheim. But where
Dick differs from the otliois Is In
this: tlioro is no similar recent rec
ord or a Bonator publicly lending Ills
nnmo nnd olllco as a lure to small In
vostora to buy stockn. Some of the
others might do In secret things
much more gravely improper, but
thoy would baldly do what. Dick has
-done In this case. Incidentally, a
few weeks ago, the advertising ngont
who put out theso announcements
mied for tho amount of bis bill; as a
part of tho suit,, tho furniture In tho
compnny's oilice was attached, where
upon it appeared that (he olllco furul
tu lo didn't belong to tho company,
but bnd been loaned to It, One cur
Ions episode In this history was Semi
tor Dick's violent protests In tbo
Cleveland Plain Dealer. What wns
tho reason? Was ho willing to ullow
tho ubo of ills name outside of Ohio.
1mt not befoio tho eyes of his own
constituents? Or did ho object to
tho rovonuo going lo u newspaper
which Is opposed to him politically?
Either would be possible and charac
teristic in tho cote of a piun of Semi
tor Dicks' cnllbor. Somehow- I ho very
Hinallnoss and cheapness of tho
things that make this senator objec
tionable seom the less compatible
with n Htnte llko Ohio, Colllor's.
Tbo bonnna appears to bo about
the only borry within reach of tho
averngo ultimate consumer.
No class of business requires nioro careful at
tention, or insists upon more rigid rules than that
of banking. It has ahyays been our earnest en
deavor to conform to these requirements.'

Copyright, 1010, by American Tress
When the civil war came on two
classes of men In the north went out
to fight. Tlie one were actuated by
patriotism, the other by what they ex
pected to make out of tho matter. But
the war, instead of lasting but n few
months, ns many at first expected, fur
nishing mllttnry titles and big pay for
this Inst named class, proved a gigan
tic, bloody- struggle, and with each
fight tho nrmy was' In need of theso
so called soldiers.
Colonel Jim C. in 1S$G2 commanded
tho brigade In which I served. Tho
colonel had been a politician In a large
city nnd wns one of the first to "offer
himself a sncrlllco to tho Union," his
Idea of that sacrifice being that he
would start out with rank of colonel
nnd return with that of general, pick
ing up sundry "perquisites" by tho
wny, then run for n fat office. He was
a fine looking man and prided him
self on being n lady killer.
No sooner were the troops grouped
Into brigades and divisions thou Colo
nel Jim by virtue of tho dnto of his
commission was placed in command of
n brigade. As soon as this elevation
took place lie looked nbout hi in for a
staff. Being allowed two aids, bo
choso Louts Richmond nnd me, both
second lieutenants. Richmond told me
thnt he didn't like the colonel nnd was
Intending to ask to be returned to his
regiment. Itut no sooner had be told
me tills than on receipt of n letter
from tho north ho said thnt'ho would
rcmnhi on the staff. I nsked him why
no nnd so suddenly ennnged Ins views,
but lie shut up like nn oyster and re
fused to litter n word In explanation.
It wns not long nfter this that one
morning at the breakfast table tbo
colonel'ii brow wns very lowering.
"Gentlemen," ho said, "there's a
thief on my stnff. Last night whilo I
wns nt Colonel R.'s headquarters" ho
had been playing poker "my trunk
wns rIOed of n package of papers."
As be spoke bo looked nt all our
faces to note the effect of his words.
I noticed thnt Richmond wns theonly
one of the stnff whose looks Indicated
"Might not tho thief bo ono of tbo
headquarters gunrd or nn orderly?"
suggested tho commissary.
"No." replied tho colonel; "tho rob
bery wns not committed for gain.
There was money In tho trunk, and it
was not tnken. Somo one on my stnff
took tho papers for a purpose. If I
can provo It on him I'll have lilni court
The colonel's eyes were, fixed Intent
ly on Richmond as ho spoke. Rut Rich
moiid went on eating his breakfast
with a fair amount of equanimity con
sidering that ho wns virtually accused
of being n thief. Nevertheless during
tho day ho made application to Colonel
Jim to bo returned to his regiment.
Now, tho relations between a gen
eral and bis personal staff nro of a
peculiarly Intimate nnd confidential
character. The general may nomlnnto
bis own stnlf, and tbo nomination Is
considered an lienor. Rut lie Is not
.likely to retain an olllcer who prefers
not to hold the position given him.
What was our surprise to learn from
Louis Richmond that the colonel de
clined to Issue tho order returning him
to his regiment. Evidently tho com
mander believed that his aid had
stolen his papers nnd proposed to foreo
him to stay where ho was until 'ho
could recover thorn.
Slnco Richmond mndo no denial of
being guilty of tbo colonel's charge wo
treated him with coolness and Dually
refused to speak to him except offi
cially. Though the young man winced
under this, ho scorned lo be sustained
by n consciousness of Innocence.
.Meanwhile mere were conditions be
tween him and the colonel that wo
could not understand. Neither took
any dellnlte stand. The colonel did
not prefer charges, nnd Richmond
made no move to force tho colonel to
permit him to Join his regiment, which
seemed to be the only wny to get rid
of u very unpleasant situation. I no
ticed that Colonel ,11m mndo no men
tion of the character of the purloined
papers, and his aid made no effurt to
free himself from the obloquy that
rested upon blm.
Such were tho conditions when wo
entered our tlrst fight. The colonel did
not show up nt the head of his brigade,
and Richmond, who appeared to be
best fitted to take his place. Issued or
ders In his aend. When tho tight was
over the colonel appeared, explaining
his nbsenco on the ground thnt ho had
got separated from bis command when
the fight opened nnd could not nfter-
wind Ilnd It.
Rut the division commander did not
nccept this excuse nnd called for
Colonel Jim's resignation. It wns
handed In, and the political general
disappeared from tho service.
Colonel Jim's relegation to ward pol
itics rclcgntcd Richmond nnd myself to
our respective regiments. Soon after
the fight bo asked me to come to his
quarters. Thcro ho made nn explana
tion of the conditions existing between
him nnd his commander. A lady had
written him that tho colonel bad a
number of letters from her which she
wns desirous should bo returned. The
colonel bnd declined to give thorn up.
She nsked Richmond to get them for
her by hook or by crook. Ho bad
Of course Richmond received bis re
word. It wns tho Indy herself.

If you havo no particular bent, but

which, being moro plainly translated,

the odd Jobs women.
Don't you bellovo it?
Hear how ono girl who was sudden
ly thrown upon her own resources
mndo for herself a comfortable living.
When forced to take uccouut of stock
sho found she had no particular talent,

bake delicious cake, pack n trunk, that
was a joy to behold when opened at a
Journey's end, play Inspiring danco
music, slug ballads blcsslugly nnd read
nloud delightfully. In addition sho
could do line mending, clean gloves
and laces and bad an nrtlstlc knack
of setting a table or decorating n room.
It would tako years to specialize on
any of tho branches, with no certainty
of dual success. While debating the

HITCHCOCK CHANGES PUNS,
Instead of Experimenting With NeW
bystem In Offices of the First
Class, Tryout Will Be Made In Sec
ond and Third Class Offices Hope
For Largor Appropriation at Next
Cession of Congress Many Appli
cations Now On File.
Washington, July 28. Announce
ment Is made that tho postofflce de
partment will establish postal sav
ings banks at several cities Oct. 1. In
dications are that the system will be
tried out in the beginning at post-
olllcos of tho second and third
classes rather than in those of the
first class, as originally planned.
It Is probable that a postal savings
bank will bo established In each of
tho 47 states at tho outset. When
the board of trustees met soon after
congress adjourned It was announced
that the new banking plan would not
bo Installod until somo time in the
now year. It was also tentatively
agreed at the tlmo not more than a
dozen banks should bo put into com
mission at tho beginning, nnd that
offices of tbo first class should be
tried for experimental purrosos. The
committee having tho details In hand
has come to the conclusion that,
owing to tho small appropriation
available, It would be better If banks
were introduced Into the smaller of
fices first. The belief Is entertained
that In the larger cities deposits
would pile up more rapidly, thus In
creasing tho cost of administration.
There Is a lively Interest on the
part ot the postmasters In tho postal
savings bank law. Moro than 300
of them hnve asked that their offices
bo designated to nccept rostal sav
ings. Nearly 614 national banks havo
requested that they be designated as
depositories of postal funds. It Is
the expectation o"f tho postal officials
that at the next session of congress
adequate appropriation will bo mado
thnt will insure the establishment of
the banks wherever there may be a
demand for them.
